- How to Install a Retro Style 6 Speed Shift Knob in Your 2011-2012 Mustang
$34.99FREE Shipping on orders over $49
Hey I’m Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and as you can see I have a number of different shift knob options, all from Modern Billet™, fitting the 2011 and newer Mustang, available in your choice of either black or white resin, or satin or chrome Billet aluminum. Modern Billet™ is a company that specializes in making a number of different styling accessories for your Mustang. The first two options the bright chrome option, and the slightly more subtle satin option, work very well on the interiors of 2011 and newer cars, both have been CNC’d from a single block of T6 Billet aluminum, and I can tell you that because of this the knobs will have a good weight to them. The second pair of knobs do have more of a retro vibe going on thanks to the old school black or white appearance, these two have been CNC’d from a single bloc of either black or white resin, which is going to make them slightly different to the Billet aluminum knobs, for one, they’re not going to be nearly as heavy as those aluminum knobs, which some people will like while others like myself prefer a knob with a little more weight to it. On the hand those resin knobs aren’t going to get nearly as hot during the summer months or as cold during the winter months. All 4 shift knob options do come with this shift boot retainer which obviously fills the void left by removing the stock shift knob and holds the stock shift boot into place making for a cleaner appearance. As for the install, can’t get much easier here, remove the stock shift knob first, install that shift boot retainer, then screw the new shift knob into place. Getting everything done should only take you about 15 minutes from start to finish. The shifter is oftentimes considered to be the centerpiece in any interior, so if you’re looking to make a visual statement with your shift then be sure to check out one of these 4 options from Modern Billet™ for your 6 speed, right here at AmericanMuscle.com

Shift knob feels great
I’ve had a couple shift knobs to replace the boring stock one. But this wan feels awesome. Despite it being chrome you don’t have to constantly polish or wipe it off. Easy to install to, about 5 mins worth of work for adjustment. Great product!Helpful (0)

I love the chrome knob. I had recently purchased a black and blue knob from AM about 6 months ago. But I decided to take the interior in a different direction than originally planned so I went with this "upgrade". I'm glad I did. I love the chrome look. One of these days I'll upload some pics. Install was a 45 second breeze, mainly because the previous knob used the same set up. Otherwise, I remember the initial knob replacement took about 15 minutes.Helpful (3)

Love this shift knob. My only complaint is without tinted windows it gets too hot to touch on a hot summer day in the sun.Helpful (3)
will this fit a short throw shifter?
This Chrome Retro Style Shift Knob is designed to fit the 2011-2014 GT and V6 equipped with the MT-82 6-speed manual transmission or Mustangs with a 12mm x 1.25 thread pattern shift handle (Most common thread pitch but will depend on your exact shifter).
Is this shift knob weighted? I had a "weighted" shift knob in a previous non mustang car and it felt amazing.
The Modern Billet Retro Style 6-Speed Shift Knob, is not a weighted shift knob however I have posted the link of one below. https://www.americanmuscle.com/frpp-6spd-shift-knob-ford-logo-blk-1517.html
Why can I not just buy the Shift Boot Retainer? I have looked all over and cannot find one...it requires the purchase of a whole new setup. Sell only the Shift Boot Retainer and I guarantee you would sell more than a few.
We offer the Shift Boot Retainer for 05-14 All Model Mustangs excluding the 2011+ Shelby GT500 or Shelby GT's equipped with the 10mm Hurst shifter handle which can be found here: https://www.americanmuscle.com/shift-boot-retainer-0509.html
Hot and Cold?? For those of you with this, how is it to the touch when subjected to hot and cold temperatures? Being in the south, the interior gets over 100 degrees and in the winter can get in the teens.
I can confirm from personal experience that it gets very hot in the summer heat and it gets very cold in the low winter temperatures. I have used a glove for my right hand when the temps are that hot or cold. Until the car gets warm or cool depending on what time of the year, the glove works great.
